Maria Leonard Olsen discusses her book "50 After 50: Reframing The Next Chapter Of Your Life", at Politics and Prose on 6/30/18.
Olsen is an attorney, a cohost of WPFW’s "Inside Out," a women’s writing and empowerment-retreat leader, a public speaker, and a woman who turned fifty expecting to find life less satisfying. But while her children didn’t need her as acutely and many of her other relationships had also changed, by setting out to accomplish fifty specific things, she discovered that the key to a meaningful life was still within her power. Her chosen goals ranged from physical challenges and travel to lifestyle changes, and the project revitalized her life. As she recounts how she selected and pursued her fifty activities, readers will be inspired to choose their own set of objectives for the next stage of life.
